Filter Launch Ltd Edition

Check Availability
A limited edition launch build showcasing what can be done with the new Filter platform.

Part of the inspiration for the Filter was a bike that Ed built up a while back. While many customers were choosing to use the Edit as their 'big bike', Ed was looking for something a bit more trail friendly, but keeping the radness of the Edit intact. The result was built around a combination of Cane Creek's Helm fork and DBcoil IL rear shock. It was good. So good in fact that we decided to develop a trail bike off the back of it.

So here we are with the Filter launch edition. The all-new Filter frame with 27.5" wheels, 135mm of rear wheel travel and a 150mm fork. It uses the latest Helm MkII fork and the newly released DBcoil IL Trunnion rear shock. We've paired that up with a GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain and G2 RSC 4-pot brakes. The wheels are the Proterra Tough i30s from WTB running Michelin Wild AM tyres front and rear.

Yes it's a trail bike. But it's engineered like an all-mountain bike. And the build - it's as capable as you are. We don't do categories and even if we did, we wouldn't know which one to put this bike in. But what we can say is that it's a heap of fun to ride.

Spring Rate

Choosing the right spring rate is key to getting the most out of a coil shock. Work out your total rider weight - including your normal riding kit - then use this chart to choose a spring. You can use the shock's preload adjuster to do the fine tuning later.

 

Please Note

These spring rates are calculated based on the Filter's kinematics. Even if you're used to running coil shocks on other bikes, you may need to check the right spring for the Filter. These calculations are based on 30% sag and a 65% rear / 35% front weight bias. On the Filter's 185mm shock length, 30% sag measures at 168.5mm eye-to-eye.
